's about taxes and what is going to happen next year with taxes? the enormous regulatory burden coming out of washington. people don't know how much it's going to cost to have that new employee that they might hire with the health care health care bill or the epa regulations. all of those things that bavarian certainty that's in the marketplace. there was just a survey that came out and said that 67% of small businesses today are not hiring because they don't know what to expect next year. and that is why we have got to have taxes to have some certainty as far as what the regulatory burden is going to be and then we can unleash this economy. we will give people the confidence to hire, to grow their business and to invest and that really is the biggest issue today for small business people certainly and really all businesses. >> moderator: i'm going to stop either congressman and kevin asked to what is the most important and i'm going to ask you what's the worst thing that congress can do right now as it tries to drive economic growth? latham: it's a tossup between increased taxes but i rea

of comfort with voters. the obama campaign guns in. plant closings, layoffs, outsourcing, income tax returns. they take a baseball bat in beat romney's brains in in the six or seven swing states. that is why his numbers were upside down. why they did that i do not know. i have been asking that question since june. it was a huge miscalculation. the romney campaign family intervention try to introduce him -- this is what they should have done back in may or june. >> mrs. romney and the oldest son of mitt romney went to the father and said to have to change things. >> for a long time, the family had wanted to take the charlie cook approach. chris wallace alluded to the fact that their big bet from the beginning was that all you had to be was not obama. that turned out to be wrong. we can see in the different channels that they are doing now. you have to be yourself in addition to not being obama. >> let me explain. a lot of you do not know who stuart stevens is. he is a republican strategist from mississippi. he was a hollywood writer. he used to write "northern exposure." he has written a coup

. i would say americanness the way. as the well, but does know the way. more efficient tax system would've created much more certainty and a whole bunch of policy. i still think it's doable. the leaders need to say we're going to do it. >> when you think of the outlines of something like simpson/bowles for sure and has to include something is entitlement reform, spending control, tax increases? >> most businesspeople are not partisan, not parochial. we can all spend 20% of the government. i think simpson/bowles is 21%. and none have an system. so simpson/bowles is a far more efficient tax system that gets this huge waste, fiction costs in our society, legal system, uncertainty. so yeah, we would have had better growth and simpson/bowles was four for one or whatever, close enough it would've been good enough. if you get the growth going again, gross people out. >> let's talk about gross. the united states has been out for several years growing at roughly half which you might call the modern historical rate and set up in mid-30s, we are courageous below to give her a tape. if you ar

had when he ran years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. i will restore the vitality that gets america working again. up next, look at the findings of a new public opinion poll in the american attitude towards muslims and arabs. the polls conducted filing recent violent protests in the arab world that erupted in a film than a gritting islam. our al arabiya news channel was part of this 90 minute event hosted by the brookings institution. >> thanks for coming out on a somewhat dreary fall morning for an event that in many ways is more prodigiously timed today than it was when we planned it, because today that was when we planned it because primitive to candidate governor mitt romney is giving a major foreign policy address earlier today just to the south of casa addressing many of the middle east policy questions that we will be discussing over the course of the day. and i hope that we will be able to take a look at what the public opinion data may rev

that president obama has not raised taxes while he has been in office. seriously? mitt romney is dropping that argument? he doesn't think president obama has raised taxes? no, not really. his campaign later saying, never mind what mitt romney just said. that's not actually what he believes. sure, he said president obama didn't raise taxes, and president obama didn't raise taxes, but really, mitt romney officially thinks that he did. they have done this over and over and over and over again, on big issues like health reform, on small issues like whether he met a guy or not. and it is a ridiculous technique. i mean, think about what this means for the long run. i mean, the romney campaign is training the country to not believe this guy when he is talking. they're training the country to feel that, you know, wherever you hear mitt romney saying something today, don't worry, it doesn't really matter. it is all subject to revision later. long-term, this is a weird technique. it has been a strange political technique from the get-go this year. but mostly, it has worked for them. them correcting

is severely anti-choice. and what he's doing here, whether it's on choice, on pre-existing conditions, on tax cuts for the rich, is all a deception designed to trick people into voting against themselves. >> so, terry, it seems like mitt romney will do the bidding of the fundamentalists like tony perkins if he becomes president? >> i think he will, but i think it's his own bidding too. i think it was important of you to show that clip of him bullying during the debate in 2002. that is the way he is with women. the stories that have emerged out of massachusetts, where he tried to bully a woman who was -- whose pregnancy was actually threatening her life. she had -- she and her husband had gotten permission from the mormon church elders to terminate this life-threatening abortion. he went in and tried to intimidate her into not terminating this -- that pregnancy. that is the way he is with women. and he -- so my sense of him is that he will lie without conscious, because it's the same thing, as intimidating and bullying. it's manipulation, it's just doing whatever he wants to do in order to get

cuts, medicare reform, taxes, are going to be major issues tonight when the candidates who have been debating those very questions in separate stump speeches, now they get to do in person face-to-face. joining me now, pennsylvania senator pat toomey, served on last year's super committee to try to tackle the deficit and of course has been a budget hawk throughout your tenure in the house and now the senate. thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> great to have you here. what should paul ryan say when joe biden goes after him on how devastating, these are biden's words, devastating the budget cuts would on discretionary domestic spending if he sticks to the defense entitlement and tax postures that he's outlined? >> well, a few things, andrea. one is the simple fact that over the ten-year budget window of the ryan budget, spending on average grows yfr year. it grows by 3% a year. so most americans -- >> not every category. >> true. but most people think that a government that's at a record size as a percentage of compete, the government that has doubled in spending in the las

romney tax cut, on the, on their budget plan, on entitlement reform. giving every suggestion that might be how he is tonight. jon: paul ryan has mastered the nation's budget on capitol hill. a member of budget committee and so forth. he is no slouch when it comes to debating facts and figures. >> there is a difference between a congressional debate and a committee hearing and being on the national stage. this will be his first time in a debate on the national stage in this kind of a venue. so he is, he is the underdog but, as you say a very bright guy. i think one thing is, when we get into foreign affairs tonight we might see paul ryan doing really, really well in an area he is not expect to do well. jon: in my humble opinion nobody takes apart poll numbers better than you do. you have interesting conclusions from some of these poll numbers that are out since the first debate. 53% of the americans are still saying the economy is in trouble and president obama hasn't done much to fix it. >> yeah, look. president obama's weakness people look what he has done the last four years and two o

, what end of tax credits do you want paul ryan and more important mitt romney and what about medicare? what does your plan really amount to? i think the vice president needs to be specific. he needs to focus and he will and he needs to remember that nobody votes based on the vice presidential candidates themselves. joe biden's target tonight in the end is not really paul ryan, it's mitt romney and it's the mitt romney that the president didn't successfully attack last week. >> and, howard, to that point, has romney in some ways made paul ryan's job more difficult, not only by laying out a tax plan that fundamentally doesn't add up but also with his comments this week about abortion, first coming out saying there was no legislation that he was aware of that he would support banning abortion or curtailing abortion and then coming back and saying, i will be a pro life president and i want to defund planned parenthood? has he laid out a difficult challenge for paul ryan himself? >> i think he's laid out a difficult challenge for paul ryan on abortion, for sure. that's an issue that the de

the budget taken care of and paying down debt and tax reform, the messages that worked in michigan. we're the come back state in the country and done reforms in the last year and a half and working we're 50 out of 50 and proven what can be done, it needs to happen in washington now and governor romney is the guy that can get it done. stuart: another issue on the ballot in your state in michigan in november and that's a constitutional amendment which would give enormous new power to municipal unions. am i phrasing is right, that he cans accurate. >> you're right. it would be a major step back in time for michigan. stuart: and michigan could never become a right to work state. it would be out of the question unless you changed back the constitution. the constitutional law could be used to interfere in any local decisions concerning local municipal unions. >> i call it the back in time amendment. because if you step back and look at this, it's not about collective bargaining, i've done collective bargaining with state employees and i believe it's protected in law and other fashions. this

we've been tethered to for the last four years, which is fewer jobs, more spending, higher taxes and lower take home pay. >> shep: before the debate last week, the pundits were saying, well, romney has to come out swinging. he's behind. when you're behind, you got to take big shots. government to swing for the fences. the opposite would be true tonight. is it a night for paul ryan to lay low? >> i don't think so. you know what i think will happen, really, paul ryan is going to mix it up. that's his nature. he really wants this election to be about big things, shep. so i think you will see him sort of laying out in policy form the things that he wants his administration to -- romney administration to be about. i don't think he'll be overly aggressive. but i think he'll be in there mixing it up. i suspect that vice president biden for the reasons that you just mentioned, is president-elect obama going to come out and be aggressive. they need to do something to change the narrative that came out of the presidential debate last week. i expect him to come out and try and do that this
